CHD Living has utilised an employee sponsorship scheme to expand its international workforce.
The provider, a family-owned and operated group of care homes in Surrey, Hampshire, and South London, has hired new staff through the UK’s employee sponsorship scheme, and plans to sponsor additional workers via the initiative.
CHD Living is Home Office-approved to recruit from overseas for various roles, including health care assistants and nurses. The provider holds a sponsor licence under the ‘skilled worker’ category.
Eligibility for sponsorship includes having a valid certificate of sponsorship from a UK employer who has offered the job, meeting English language requirements, and undertaking background checks, including qualifications, identity, employment recommendation, and criminal record.
Shaleeza Hasham, head of hospitality, communications & commissioning at CHD Living said: “As a company, we guide our overseas recruits throughout the sponsorship process and provide support upon arrival, as we understand that moving to a new country and place of work can be daunting.”
